3. Employment with 2 employers. Except as provided in section 18056, subsection 3, paragraph D and section 18656, subsection 3, paragraph D, a participant to whom coverage is available under subsection 1 or section 18655, subsection 1 may participate through employment with 2 or more employers.
4. Retirees who return to service. A retiree who is insured pursuant to section 18061, subsection 2 or 18661, subsection 2 and who returns to employment in a position in which the person would be eligible for coverage under subsection 1 is eligible for coverage under subsection 1 only if that person pays the cost of the coverage.

The board shall establish a method by which such persons may pay the costs of insurance coverage elected under this subsection, which may include basic and supplemental insurance.
Effective September 13, 2003, unless otherwise indicated.
